Rotary hammer Makita hr2450

First impression

The MAKITA HR2450 rotary hammer is positioned by manufacturers as a tool designed for professional use. From the general characteristics that are indicated on the price tag, you can find out the following features:

  • Power drill. 780 watts.
  • Type of chuck. SDS Plus.
  • Operating modes. three: conventional drilling, drilling accompanied by impact, chiselling (impact without drilling).
  • The number of speeds is one.

This information is too small to have a complete picture of the tool. Full trust in the words of the seller is also not worth it: this is an interested person. Therefore, we will be guided by our own impressions and opinions of customers.

During the initial inspection, the Makita 2450 makes a positive impression. The tool is made in a two-color version: blue and black, on the handle there are special rubberized pads. The build quality is quite decent, there are no backlashes, the plastic shell sits like a glove. The product is equipped with a special storage case. This is a very important nuance: some manufacturers do not include a case in the basic package.

The mass of the product is 2.4 kilograms, an additional handle is provided, which allows you to apply more effort when chiselling solid materials. The rotary hammer is equipped with a rather long electric cable. 4 meters. The basic equipment includes a depth gauge for drilling, however, there are no drills.

Makita 2450 SDS Plus x8 is manufactured in China. Manufacturer’s warranty is one year from the date of purchase.


The power consumption of MAKITA HR2450 is 780 W, which makes it possible to work with almost any kind of building materials (wood, metal or concrete). The nominal impact energy is 2.7 J. Note that the maximum allowable hole diameter is set for each material. In particular:

  • For wood. 32 mm.
  • For metal. 13 mm.
  • For concrete coatings. 24 mm.

These parameters were obtained by manufacturers as a result of technical tests. It is not recommended to exceed the set values: the likelihood of wear of the electric motor increases, and the life of the tool is accordingly reduced.

The maximum number of revolutions of the chuck in drilling mode is 1,100 rpm. Impact frequency. 4,500 bpm. Please note that these characteristics are relevant for the tool idling. When immersed in the drill in the material, the speed and impact frequency are reduced.

One chuck is included in the basic package. Cartridge Type SDS Plus. By the way, this nuance suggests that the tool is intended for domestic use. Therefore, manufacturers are cunning, declaring this model of a hammer drill as a professional tool. SDS Plus is designed to work with drills whose shank diameter does not exceed 10 mm. In professional rotary hammers, the SDS Max chuck is used, which is suitable for shanks with a diameter of 18 mm.

Of the useful options, the following features can be distinguished:

  1. Automatic blocking. turns on when the voltage drops in the mains.
  2. Protective system to prevent debris from entering the instrument.
  3. Safety clutch. breaks the adhesion of the chuck and engine when the drill is jammed.
  4. Reverse. reverses the direction of rotation of the drill.
  5. Speed ​​controller.


  • Hard case for storage. The presence of this accessory automatically solves the problem with the delivery of the tool to the place of work and simplifies storage. By the way, the external dimensions and internal space are optimized as much as possible: nothing more.
  • Three operating modes. This feature allows you to use an electric hammer drill like a drill or jackhammer. In combination with a good power (780 W), the tool shows good performance and functionality. The working bit can be fixed in 40 positions.
  • Convenience in operation. The hammer drill weighs only 2.4 kilograms, so you can perform work even with one hand. At the same time, the tool does not slip out of the palm due to rubberized pads. When strobing walls, especially under the ceiling, an extra grip helps a lot. This element is removable, so it can be easily removed if desired.
  • Quick detachable SDS Plus cartridge. The advantage of this type of chuck is that the drill shank is fixed at five points. This ensures the reliability of fastening, however, if necessary, you can replace the drill with literally one movement.
  • Long cord. The presence of a four-meter cable eliminates the need for carrying during work.
  • Protection. This includes a safety clutch and reverse function. When the drill is jammed, the load on the electric motor automatically increases, the winding burns out accordingly, and the tool is sent for repair. Installing the coupling avoids such unpleasant consequences. Thanks to the reverse function, it is possible to pull out a jammed drill without problems without rocking the tool.
  • Smooth start. This feature reduces the load on the motor at startup, increasing the life of the tool.
  • Strong case. High-strength plastic is used here, so even when dropped, cracks and chips do not appear on the case.
  • Acceptable price. The cost of the MAKITA HR2450 electric punch starts from 6,300 rubles.


Customer reviews say that this model has virtually no flaws. However, there are still design flaws. Here are the weak points of the Makita 2450 punch:

  • Oil leaks. After lubricating the shank of the drill, part of the oil flows into the chuck during operation.
  • Overheat. Buyers note that the perforator gear is very hot during operation. The problem can be caused by poor quality parts (virtually eliminated) or non-compliance with the rules of operation of a power tool. In particular, by exceeding the permissible loads on the percussion mechanism.
  • There is no vibration protection mechanism.
  • Very poor basic equipment.


The MAKITA HR2450 is well worth the money spent. The tool is suitable for professional and domestic use. Thanks to the expanded functionality it can be used for repair and construction works. In particular, a power of 780 watts is enough to dismantle old claddings, lay hidden wiring and make new communication holes in concrete floors and brick walls.

Subject to the requirements of the manufacturer, the tool can last for a long time without the need for service. If we summarize the identified shortcomings, then we will not see significant problems. Of course, manufacturers could equip their electric tools with drills without introducing buyers to additional expenses. Or eliminate the problem with the leakage of grease from the chuck. But these flaws do not affect the performance and functionality of the product. Therefore, the MAKITA HR2450 rotary hammer electric, with a power of 780 W can be rated at 8 points out of 10 possible.

Even very reliable Makita rotary hammers break down over time.
Any breakdown is eliminated, you only need to have straight arms and perseverance.
In addition to electrical malfunctions, rotary hammers are also subject to mechanical breakdowns.
The work of rock drills with solid materials in a dusty environment shortens the life of the machine and requires user intervention to perform preventive maintenance.

Remember! In the lower part of the body, the rotor is held by electric brushes, which must be removed.

At the next stage, the rotor must be disconnected from the removed mechanism. The rotor is disconnected from the mechanism simply by pulling out, because it is held by the friction of two helical gears.

It turned out such a dirty knot.

Now you need to separate the shaft of the percussion mechanism.

Most often, rubber rings, striker poses wear out. 24, compressor spring pos. 18. and cylinder parts.
Here’s how barrel parts wear out and collapse during improper use of the tool.

Consider the most difficult malfunction. failure of the shock mechanism.
The characteristic signs of failure of the impact mechanism is the absence of impact and the unpleasant noise of a working punch in the “Impact” mode.

Such a malfunction is typical for those perforators that during operation were pressed strongly against the work surface.
Having disassembled the gearbox, we remove debris and pieces of foreign objects. We find the defective part and clean everything from the old grease.

Very often the striker pos. 24 is destroyed, art. 324396-8, which is part of the trunk.
metal ring pos. 27. art. 324216-6.
Discard damaged parts, replace with new ones, cover with a thin layer of grease. Parts are ready for assembly. But more on that in the next article.

How the punch works and works

You can almost always find a puncher in a set of a home master. Replaceable nozzles do this tool universal and irreplaceable. Let us consider in more detail what nodes it consists of and how they work correctly.

What is a punch

The controls are located on the tool body, as can be seen in the following photo:

The internal device of the punch can not be understood without disassembling it. The following main components are hidden in the plastic case:

  • electric motor;
  • safety clutch;
  • “Drunk” bearing;
  • flying piston;
  • cartridge.

The principle of operation of the punch consists in turning the rotation of the electric motor into a shock-rotational movement of the nozzles. The electric motor drives the rest of the hammer mechanism. A safety clutch ensures the safety of specialists during operation. A drunk bearing drives the piston, creating an impact force, and the cartridge provides clamping nozzles. Now let’s talk more about each of these nodes.

Electric motor

The main parts of the electric motor are the stator and rotor.

The stator windings create a constant electromagnetic field inside which the rotor rotates. There are several windings on the rotor. The findings of the coils are connected to the contacts of the armature. At the same time, one of the windings is included in the electrical circuit. Power is supplied through graphite brushes to the armature contacts. By switching the windings, a slip field is created, due to which the rotor rotates.

The electric motor in the tool can have a horizontal and vertical arrangement. Horizontal is usually used in lightweight rotary hammers, while medium and high power models are equipped with a vertical electric motor.

In the latter case, a gearbox is added to the design of the hammer, changing the direction of rotation, increasing the torque and impact force of the tool.

The operation of the electric part of the hammer is regulated by the trigger by pressing a button on the handle.

Safety clutch

To stop the rotation of the cartridge, if the working nozzle is jammed, a safety clutch is installed in the perforators. This is a necessary element: without using it, a powerful tool is turned out of hand, the continuation of independent rotation of the punch easily leads to injuries to the worker. Two main types of coupling devices are used in rotary hammers: friction or cam.

  1. Under normal operating conditions of the tool, the friction clutch discs are pressed tightly against each other. this transfers the rotation force to the rest of the mechanism. If rotation is difficult, the wheels slip without overloading the drive.
  2. In the cam clutch, both of its halves have beveled protrusions included in the grooves of the counterpart. The coupling halves are connected with a spring of a certain stiffness. If the force on the percussion mechanism exceeds the pressure of the spring, the protrusions come out of the grooves, disengaging the clutch. During this, a characteristic crack is heard, for which a cam clutch is often called a rattle.

Shock mechanism

The percussion mechanism in the designs of perforators is of two types:

The most widely used is the electro-pneumatic option. The “drunk” (swinging) bearing and piston together constitute the percussion percussion mechanism.

When the main shaft rotates, the swinging bearing performs translational movements, transferring force to the ram of the pneumatic cylinder. The air in the cylinder pushes the piston with the striker. The working part of the cartridge is subjected to strikes, the drill clamped in the cartridge hits the material being processed.


The cartridge for the punch is designed so that the user has the opportunity to quickly change the nozzle without making long breaks in work. We are talking about cartridges of two main types:

The tool shank for the SDS-plus chuck is clamped with two locking balls.

SDS-max chucks clamp tools with other shanks for a more secure hold.

What can a tool do?

The following main operating modes of the punch are distinguished:

  • rotation punch. allows you to drill a concrete wall;
  • impact without rotation. to hammer concrete;
  • rotation without impact. with a nozzle under the drill allows you to drill like a drill.

Those who often work with a hammer drill know that in addition to drilling and chiselling walls, such a tool can also shatter walls for wiring. Making a shtroba in concrete with this tool is quite simple. First, a series of holes are drilled on marked fishing lines. Then a lint between the holes is broken with a lance or spatula. Such use of a rotary hammer is not typical, but allows you to refuse to purchase additional tools.

Strobing with a perforator allows you to get not such an ideal result as after a stroborez, but subsequent plaster hides all the defects.

Safety operation

The puncher is an electromechanical tool, so you need to use it, observing safety measures.

  1. Before starting work, you need to make sure the integrity of the electrical cord. A damaged plug or insulation on the cord may result in electric shock. Cracks in the case can also be source of danger.
  2. Replaceable nozzles must be securely fastened, otherwise during operation they can pop out of the cartridge and cause injury.
  3. Drilling material is necessary without touching the rotating part of the tool: sharp edges easily damage your hands and other parts of the body.
  4. The nozzles become very hot during rotation, so after finishing work you must not touch them with your bare hands in order to avoid burns.

To operate a power tool correctly is to maintain health. Be sure to follow the safety rules and wear personal protective equipment: gloves, a mask or glasses, special work clothing.

Operation of the Makita HR 2450

Before starting work, you must make sure that the trigger switch is functioning and easily returns to shutdown mode if you release it. After connecting the power, the work starts by pressing the power button, the speed of work is determined by the pressure on the button. To stop the drill, the switch is fully released. If the shutdown button is locked, then to shutdown you must squeeze it to the end and then turn it off.

To turn on the reverse movement, it is necessary to turn the switch to position “A”, the drill will begin to move to the right. In position "B" it moves in the opposite direction. Before drilling, make sure that the direction of rotation is correct. To change the settings, you must wait until the drill stops completely. When setting the reverse movement of the drill, the power button is only half-squeezed.

Impact rotation is ideal for working in hard materials. To set this mode, it is necessary to fix the lock button with your finger and then turn the mode change knob to the symbol “drill-hammer”. For operation of the device in this mode, a bit with a tungsten carbide alloy tip is optimally suitable.

For work on soft substrates and medium-density materials, the rotation mode is optimal. Its installation is carried out by the mode change knob, it is switched to the symbol “drill”. The drill with a spiral or a drill on a tree is ideally suited to carry out these works. For scraping, splitting or crushing the material into pieces, the shock mode is optimal. It is set with a mode change knob, it is turned to the “hammer” position. The pyramidal chisel, a chisel for scraping, etc. are suitable for performing these works.

It is forbidden by the operating rules to switch the mode during the rotation of the device, as this will lead to its breakdown. It is also necessary to ensure that the installation switch is exactly at one selected position, and not between them.

The device is equipped with a torque limiter. If the motor reaches a critical speed level, it will automatically shut off, the bit will stop rotating. When the limiter is turned on during operation, it is necessary to immediately disconnect the device from the network, in order to avoid rapid wear of its components.

The Makita HR 2450 rotary hammer model is equipped with a depth gauge, which allows you to make holes of the same depth. To set the optimal hole size, loosen the handle, insert the depth gauge into the hole located on the side, set the required depth and fix the handle on the side.
